I work as a researcher and producer with photographers and filmmakers. Here are a selection of projects I've worked on.


I co-produced the short documentary film "My American Surrogate," commissioned by The New York Times Op-Doc.

My American Surrogate tells the story of Qiqi, a leading Chinese surrogacy broker in California who matches Chinese parents-to-be with willing American wombs. One day, business gets personal and she decides to have a baby via her own American surrogate.


I researched and handled the logistics for the project on sand and land reclamation in China for photographer Sim Chi Yin.

I worked with photographer Davide Monteleone traveling in China for this story. I researched places and people to visit for the project, planned the logistics before and during the trip, and translated in interviews.
